Another bawdy broad, Mitzi Gaynor, President of the Dancers Society, also displayed her wicked sense of humor, when she showed off her well fitted red suit (courtesy of designer David Hayes); and her jewelry, which she credited to Howard Hughes. “I’m the last one left from that era”, she proclaimed!

Also honored was the late Rita Hayworth, whose film clips revealed why she was the original screen goddess. Did you know that she began her career when she was only 13 years old, dancing with her dad? Also lauded was Janet Leigh, who died just last year. Leigh will always be remembered for her many musical roles, although her dramatic shower scene in Psycho is certainly a cinema classic.
Kudos goes to Joni Berry, who underwrote the event which distributes monies raised to aid dancers in need.

We were all at a cocktail reception to announce the Jimmy Stewart Relay Marathon, which will be held on April 17th at Griffith Park. This is one of the largest marathons in the U.S., and all proceeds will benefit programs and services at St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica. Wager has been hosting these races for 22 years, and spoke about carrying on the late Jimmy Stewart’s legacy.
This was truly a week of Ladies, Legends and Love on the Hollywood Beat.
